- [Josh] PROPOSAL: An OWASP Foundation Board member is elected to a two-year term. A Board member may run again for re-election at any point in the future, but may serve no more than two two-year terms in any ten year period. Current Board members would be allowed to complete their current term. This would encourage new ideas and renewed energy on the OWASP Board of Directors and keep elections from being a popularity contest where incumbents may be difficult to displace.
Current OWASP Foundation Bylaws:
Section 2.02 currently reads:
- Each Board member will serve for a term of 2 years. The term will begin effective January 1 following the election period. An individual is limited to 4 consecutive 2 year terms effective January 1, 2014. The role of the Board Members shall be elected by the Board of Directors at the first meeting following the election of the Board of Directors. If the election of officers shall not be held at such meeting, such election shall be held as soon thereafter as conveniently may be. Each officer shall hold that role until the next election has been completed.
MOTION: Revise Section 2.02 to read:
- Each Board member will serve for a term of 2 years. The term will begin effective January 1 following the election period. A Board member may run again for re-election at any point in the future, but may serve no more than two two-year terms in any ten year period. The role of the Board Members shall be elected by the Board of Directors at the first meeting following the election of the Board of Directors. If the election of officers shall not be held at such meeting, such election shall be held as soon thereafter as conveniently may be. Each officer shall hold that role until the next election has been completed.
This new rule would take effect with the 2017 election and the directors elected for the 2018/2019 term.
- [Josh] Scheduled Board Meeting Discussion: I would like to request that the meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 12th be moved to either Tuesday, April 11th or Thursday, April 13th at the same time. I will be coaching a soccer game at the currently scheduled date and time. Also, the timezone for June 7 is listed as CEST. Is that intentional? I ask because every other timezone is listed in PST or PDT. I shouldn't have an issue if it is, but I at least wanted to verify that is the case. Lastly, the September 19th meeting says "in Orlando at AppSecEU", but the October 11th meeting also says "at AppSecUSA" and is in EST. Which is it? Are the times still correct for both? https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Board#The_OWASP_Foundation_Inc..2C_Global_Board_of_Directors
